If nothing can exist unless God allows it, is God evil for allowing evil to exist?
- UserLv 71 month agoFavorite Answer
Evil (as you are using the word) is not a thing with substance
like sand or air or even light.
Evil is a descriptive noun, as is "good".
God is not evil for allowing evil to exist.
Those who perpetrate evil are evil for perpetrating it.

Evil is the creation of... The Supreme Soul.. God..

Actually it is God's love that allows evil to exist. He could have created humans as pre-programmed robots who could do nothing but His will. However, He loved us too much to do that to us, so He created us with free will, the right and ability to choose our own path and our own actions. He clearly revealed those kinds of decisions that would make us happiest, and those which would do us harm, but He left the decisions to us.

God allows all things to happen as they will,
in their own time, and most often without intervention.
If you take a big steaming crap
right on your own mother, it won't be her fault.
No one is exempt from being their own reason for evil.
Evil is not the fault, or a product, of God.

No gods do not exist in reality. Other than within the completely brainwashed religious mindset that is

The original Judaism only had one deity in their God of Abraham, and they did believe that he created everything including evil as well as good. To think that others created evil is to accept another deity. Lucifer was just a judge who was feared for being that judge.

He's allowing evil to exist to prove that His standards of living it far superior to what man think living is.
(Ecclesiastes 8:9) All of this I have seen, and I applied my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, during the time that man has dominated man to his harm.

Free moral agency involves choice, Joshua 24:15. "Sin entered the world, and death by sin." Romans 5:12, 6:23. Therefore evil is a choice.

That isn't true. Good and evil have always existed, independent of God. God can't prevent us from doing evil. We have our moral agency.

No. The United States of America allows freedom of speech. Some people use that freedom to say evil things. Does the United States of America allowing such evil therefore make the United States of America evil? Of course not.
